Bat City Productions

The inception of BCP came about when three members and an ally of a Seattle gothic social club wanted to go beyond the limits of the Goth community. They all, in their own way, disbanded from said social club. However, inside them was the need to build bridges. They wanted to unite the people, support the artists and the performers, the venues and promoters, but most of all, take care of the suppoters and fans of this city’s alternative scenes..

The Belfry Oddities

The Belfry is a unique store to the Seattle area, offering a variety of visually interesting items from the mysterious and macabre to the beautiful and intriguing. We specialize in Victorian era mourning pieces, vintage taxidermy, human and animal bones and other items which reflect the fantastic realm of natural history.

The majority of our items are vintage or antique and as a result they may show wear. We will note any damage due to age whenever possible and always do our best to provide the highest quality antique and vintage items we can find. Do to the unique nature of our items we are not able to accept returns and all sales are final.

We understand and appreciate that taxidermy may not appeal to everyone. All of our taxidermy is vintage to the best of our knowledge and we do what we can to prevent the purchase of harvested animals. We feel that taxidermy is a way of giving praise to an animal that would no longer be alive and as animal lovers we feel honored to have these animals adorn our walls.
